I have more alternate project ideas to share with the January 2019 Be Mine Valentine Paper Pumpkin kit! Sometimes I get on a roll, and I just can’t put a kit aside. Hahaha! I hope you are inspired by these creations. If you didn’t get the January kit, I hope you are still able to apply these ideas to other products you may have on hand.
Rather than writing out all the details & directions for each of these creations, I shared them in my Wednesday’s Facebook Live broadcast. (I also shared upcoming new products that will be available February 15th and March 1st.) Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and full products list below, scroll through the close-up photos of what I created, and then let me know if you have any questions.
Here are close-up photos and the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate any of these projects.
FLIP FOLD WECOME BABY CARD
My three versions: With the top two I used the full kangaroo stamp image and matching dies from the coordinating Animal Expedition Suite in my kangroo underneath. In the bottom card I used no dies at all. Instead I used the Sprig Punch, fussy-cut the pouch area from the stamped Kangaroo image, and added it to another kangaroo piece from the kit.
Here are a couple photos I took while making these three cards. I didn’t like the harshness of all black ink, and I didn’t like the softness of all Smoky Slate ink.
I also didn’t like how the die-cut stamped kangaroo didn’t line up with the kangaroo in the kit (totally fine for making other projects, but not good for this flip-fold card where the cut outs needed to be stacked).
So this one (the bottom of the three) ended up being my favorite.
